makeint.h apparently believes (line 118-120) that no system that defines __arm
is actually POSIX, an assumption that seems to have existed since 1994 but is
clearly now nonsense.

job.c line 507, which is inside a block that is compiled only when POSIX is
_not_ defined but HAVE_SIGSETMASK is, contains both an outright syntax error
(missing semicolon) and a reference to an obsolete and non-portable function
whose existence is not tested for by configure. This bug appears to have
existed since 2017.

Together, these prevent compilation on any POSIX system which defines __arm,
including but probably not limited to FreeBSD on armv6/armv7 targets.
